It's been cold here for way too long and we've been trapped inside. So as we patiently (yeah right) wait for Spring to creep in we have been busy doing lots of crafts around here. I thought I would share a couple of things we have done.
Of course you can't go wrong with good ole tissue paper and glue.
Can we just take a minute and look at that belly.
HA, look at that thing...how cute!
Seriously, the girl wakes up without it then eats a few pancakes and BAM there it is.
I love that belly.
Anyway, we painted and stuck and painted and stuck and then did it some more. After that we cleaned up a big sticky glue mess, and when they were dry we cute them into hearts that now are hanging on our cupboards.
I found this one by googling 'Kids Valentine's Crafts'
First I made the branches out of some rope twiney stuff.
Glued it down and let it sit over night.
Then we traced and cut out a whole bunch of little hearts.
Then Alexa glued the hearts to the tree.
And voila...a heart tree. Alexa wanted to put names of some of the people she loved on her hearts. How sweet is that!?
And then there's just plain painting, which I honestly think was Alexa's favorite thing out of all them. We were going to try to do some heart hand prints that I also found online but we never got around to it.
We have one festive house over here, good thing we love Valentine's Day!!
Anybody else do any fun Valentine's stuff?
Let me know....it's snowing right now so it looks like we will still have time to make more. :)
